General Petraeus and Expectations

Commander Gen. David Petraeus poses with his biographer Paula Broadwell

By now the amazingly complexed love pentagon of General Petraeus has infiltrated all crevasse and corners of the American media and the backlash is fierce and unyielding. But why such an outcry, what does  Potus have to do with this and does anyone remember Bill?

Why all the ruckus? Well General David Howell Petraeus is one of the most decorated military figures in American history and he is celebrated, loved and respected. So much so that he was chosen as head of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and was in line to hold top position in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). With all these accolades Mr. Petraeus takes on a vulnerability that most of us can’t imagine. That is to maintain a respectable existence while under the social scope.

You may be saying, “that’s easy”. But just think about your own and the lives of the people around you. How well have they been coping with the rigores of being a human being?

There are reports that military secrets were on Paula Broadwell not to mention the fact that General John Allen and Jill Kelley who is tied to both men who are involved.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) – Broadwell is at the center of a national sex scandal that has ended the career of retired four-star general Petraeus and now threatens that of General Allen. The affair between Broadwell and Petraeus was first uncovered after threatening messages were sent to 37-year-old Jill Kelley, wherein Broadwell told her to cool her friendship with Petraeus.

Broadwell also sent emails using the pseudonym “KelleyPatrol” warning General Allen about Kelley the “seductress” – sources say that these emails were lewd and solicitous, in the manner of “phone sex.”

General Allen, who is married who two daughters, denies any wrongdoing. Officials claim his emails to Kelley, who is also married with children, were simply friendly and not “inappropriate” or flirtatious.

However, sources have told Fox News that the emails between the pair were so explicit that they could be compared to “the equivalent of phone sex over email.”

What about Barack Obama how does he fit in, well Obama was the one who hired the guy. So he is in the mix.

We should all take time out to reflect on events of the past and see how others have navigated political turmoil. Bill Clinton was a politician who managed and used high expectations to his advantage. In the midst of seemingly certain annihilation he didn’t lose his composure nor the gaul to look America in the eye and say, ” I did not have sexual relations with that woman…” – Genius

What Bill didn’t lose sight of was the fact that he was a politician and when in crisis you do what politicians do best and Bill Clinton did it best.  I’m not saying these guys should lie, but instead they should keep calm and speak as though they deserved their ranks. The people will do the rest.

Obama, Petraeus, Allen just think, what would Bill Clinton do?

*on a side note. Don’t get caught up in the media frenzy, keep your eyes open and use your expectations of particular figures to scrutinize their actions. Don’t march with popularized ignorance. Remember independence is freedom.

To be Falsely Incarcerated and then Forgive, the saga of Jennifer Thompson and Ronald Cotton

Ronald Cotton and Jennifer Thompson

Well this has certainly got to be the most interesting case I’ve come across since morning. In a triumph of human character Ronald Cotton some how found enough kindness in his heart to forgive the woman who accused him of rape and almost destroyed his life.

Thompson wrongly accused Cotton of raping her in 1984, though she didn’t do it on purpose. She was certain Cotton was her attacker — and convinced two juries he was.

Cotton was sentenced to life behind bars in North Carolina in both his trial and a retrial; in the latter trial, a second victim claimed he’d raped her as well. Ronald maintained his innocence throughout.

Can you imagine what was going through this mans head when he was sentenced to life in prison twice knowing he was innocent! The psychological horror must be beyond this world. That alone would have caused many of us to simple lose it.


Eleven years into his sentence, he asked for new DNA-testing technology to be used — and was finally proven innocent and released in 1994. Investigators — and Thompson — were blown away by the news. She and Ronald met after his release so she could apologize, and broke down in each other’s arms.

Cotton identified the real criminal as well — serial rapist Bobby Poole, who was his fellow inmate. Poole died in prison in 1999.

Bobby Poole – Ronald Cotton

Would you have made the same mistake and shave 11 years off a mans most active period in life?

Well I’m glad it turned out well but stories like these give me nightmares, I’m serious.



Barack Obama remains POTUS

Barack Obama re-elected as President of the United States

It what many analysts are describing as the closest elections in US history Mr. Barack Hussein Obama had retained his post as Commander-in-Chief. Many people were skeptical as to whether or not Barack could pull it off but he and the Democrats pulled through in the end.

The liberals must be overjoyed and I know the Caribbean massive are apart of the revelry, for many pf Obama promised immigration reforms are better geared towards helping immigrants from the Caribbean and Mexico.

Many are not seeing eye-to-eye with Obama regarding immigration policy but the truth of the matter is for most of what we know the United States has always been and open country and without question enslavement which lead to mass forced emigration, immigration of Europeans and Mexicans built the US.

Regarding the military budget any downsizing would be welcomed in this feverish global environment. The fact remains ever since George Bush moved the US from a mega-power to a in debt Republic the global climate quickly adjusted. Nations like Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) have taken a crucial role on the world stage and the equity of hegemony is being redistributed.  At this point careless expansion of any military is an hinderance to us all.

Even if China claims the position as largest economy it will in no way be able to cause a disastrous loss of US interest abroad. This is because the United States since the end of world war 2 and the coming of the International Monetary Fun (IMF), World Bank and World Trade Organization has effective stamp a large foot-print globally. The scars from Uncle Sam’s steel toe boot won’t go away overnight.

Another issue is Medicare/Medicaid and welfare. Now this one seems to bring out all the ignorance. Why would you want state sponsored medical coverage? I know no competition right? Wrong. The US has the of the worst Medical care in the developed world. Nothing like the Social-Democracy in Finland, Norway and Sweden or in capitalist Japan. It doesn’t even compare to the neighbor to the North; Canada.

Americans for Welfare Rights

Regarding social welfare lets face it, a lot of Americans are dirt poor and need this. For some reason people always associate welfare and food stamps with black not remembering that 41% of people on welfare are Caucasian. This means white make up majority of welfare recipients while blacks make up 36% and latinos 16%.

If one should consider the statistics regarding latinos and illegal immigration then it would become abundantly clear that far more people are reliant on hand outs than we would like to admit. Americans need to recognize these facts before their country collapse under the strain of ignorance.

Final map of United States (US) 2012 election result

*Regardless of who had one won, I would have looked at the positive, doom and gloom is not healthy and it makes no sense complaining about what can’t be changes, so just work hard and aim for the best. Remember we are dealing with politicians here.

Lets get ready to rumble, Obama vs Romney 2012

“We got em where we want em Barack”
“Shhh…. Quiet Mitt”

Its finally here again people, the United States elections. A time filled with joy, hope and sadness. A sudden moment when ignorance overwhelms the composition of otherwise perfectly logically human beings and they put themselves in cliques of Democrat/Liberal and Republican/Conservative.

Why you may ask?

To protect the current Corporate-democracy, where transnationals strive and the poor are deprived. Unlike many Americans regardless of party affiliation I don’t say things like, “go back to the constitution” and “1776!” because in that same constitution black people are regarded as sub human and George Washington had 316 slaves.

Back to the now, which fight camp are you on? Will you be crying, shocked or blasting out rays of twisted delight that someone you voted for will once again short change, you, your family and your neighbor?

Anyway lets do this! Elections 2012! WHOOOOOOOO!

Jamaican woman killed in New York while pregnant

Vindalee Smith KILLED IN NY!

Vindalee Smith

Jamaica – The body of 38-year-old Vindalee Smith said to be a Jamaican mother of four, was found stabbed to death in her Brooklyn home Saturday morning.

Vindalee Smith, 38, was found on the floor of her apartment in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn with a gaping wound in her neck. It wasn’t clear how long she’d been dead before the body was discovered by her landlord. Her unborn child did not survive.

There was no sign of forced entry, and no weapon was recovered, police said. Investigators are looking for a possible suspect. They interviewed her friends and family, and spoke to her fiance.

“I can’t even begin to imagine who would want to do that,” her friend, Sybil Samuel, told local newspapers. “It would be the devil, to kill a woman with a child in her stomach. They killed two people.”

Smith had four children in their teens and 20s, friends said. A baby shower had been planned for Saturday evening, followed by a small wedding Sunday. Friends told reporters that Smith had met her fiance about a year ago.

Smith was a devout Seventh-Day Adventist and attended New Dimension Church, where she was supposed to get married. Congregation members were concerned when she didn’t show up for morning service.

“She was always on time_ always the first person at church,” Tyler Harrigan told the Daily News of New York. “When the news came to the church, the whole church broke down. We started to bawl. All the children were crying.”

This is so sad. Whats up with all the crime in NY?
